No date set for Brady mental health tribunal

No new date has been set for Ian Brady's mental health tribunal.

He has been due to go before a mental health tribunal last month, but it was cancelled after he was taken to hospital after suffering a seizure.

It is understood that arrangements need to be put in place to agree on a suitable date for all legal parties in the case.

Brady is challenging his insanity diagnosis which allows doctors at Ashworth mental hospital in Merseyside to force feed him.

It is believed he wants to return to the normal prison system where staff would not be allowed to stop him going on hunger strike.
